Mumbai: Swimsuit model Angela Johnson, who claimed to have dated Ranbir Kapoor has reportedly bagged the lead role in Salman Khan’s next.
Talking to a tabloid, a source said that Salman was keen to launch a new face. And he found his leading lady in Angela.
The swimsuit model was trying hard for long to land an A-list project in Bollywood. She has been a regular feature in B-Town social gatherings.
“Katrina and Salman will be working together for the next six months on `Ek Tha Tiger`. And so, it seemed more practical to have a new face opposite Salman in `Sher Khan`. Since Angela has been waiting a long time for a break in the industry, the actor thought that `Sher Khan’ would be a good starting point for her career.”
Buzz has it that the stunner will have to undergo training in martial arts for her role in her debut film. The film will be directed by Salman’s kid brother Sohail and will have professional trainers from abroad.
The film is slated to go on floors in January next year and will be shot at some of the most exotic locations in the world.
“Sohail is currently finalizing locations to shoot the film,” added the source.
However, when the tabloid contacted Sohail, he chose not to divulge much information. He said, "Yes I’ve met her. I will decide once the script is totally complete."
Even Angela’s business manager chose not to speak about the project.
